Apprenticeship Development

M4S Young Black engineer.jpg

The Problem 

  • With the changes in Apprenticeship Standards and Frameworks and the average pass rate declining, the need to apply a new approach is critical

  • The so-called new world of work also raises the "unconsidered need" for improved structured social learning and collaborative mentoring

  • Changes in working practices have reduced or removed the ability to participate in traditional "water-cooler" type learning opportunities

  • Classroom style learning has been replaced by various hybrid and online learning methods and less interaction

  • The ability to effectively evaluate the acquisition and assimilation of real learning needs a whole new approach

The Solution 

  • To counter-balance the emergent "unconsidered needs" of the future of work, the power of connected thinking and collaborative mentoring, using the existing wisdom within own organisations needs to be elevated to a new level of priority

  • With global events placing ever-increasing pressures on L&D budgets, and ROI on learning spend becoming a real challenge, the ability to effectively mobilise cross-organisational, multi-generational mentoring has never been more important

  • The importance of increasing the effectiveness and throughput of well-equipped and knowledgeable apprentices is well-recognised by government through support grants and other apprenticeship training and development schemes

  • Multi-generational Mentoring is the perfect solution to leverage the wisdom within your organisation

Extended Lifespan Value of Learning

  • Extended lifespan learning works on the tried and trusted learning method of "watch one, do one, teach one"

  • This validates that learning has been acquired and is embedded for use and application in the future 

  • The unique M4S process follows a "Before, During and After" approach combining expert, virtual instructor-led sessions with always-on, anytime & anywhere mobile App engagement
